Opening stocking stuffers Christmas morning....
The presents....thank you to all our family who sent gifts....the kids loved each and every one of their presents!
and the famous hair straightening....my Christmas present to Ann-Marie. We didn't realize how long her hair truly was until we straightened it!
Our family hopes that you and your family had a memorable Christmas 2011. We pray that you will experience many blessings in the new year!
With much love, the Jerome family.

Christmas activities for us this year have included the children's Christmas choir at church (Ann-Marie and Alec), decorating the Christmas tree, making Christmas cookies, driving around to see Christmas lights (see previous post by Evan), visiting the Merrick Art Gallery for their train display and Christmas decorations, and seeing the live Nativity in Beaver. What has been your favorite memory made this season so far?

Evan (age 10) is my guest blogger today. His blog is about an adventure our family went on this past weekend:
On Saturday night, we went on the Minivan Express to see Christmas lights. We were tricked into thinking we had to go to bed at eight. We put our pajamas on and found a golden ticket on our pillows. We gave our golden ticket to Dad, in exchange for popcorn and cherry Kool-Aid. There was a spill of Kool-aid. Alec, of course. Even Comet came along. Mr. Conductor, A.K.A. Dad, drove us around our neighborhood to see Christmas lights. I fell asleep halfway through. We drove around for a long time, about an hour. It was exciting.

As promised, I am posting a video of Ann-Marie's first gymnastics meet. The video of her floor routine came out the best, so that is the one I am sharing. Vault was her best event, followed by floor, bars, and finally beam. We were proud of her hard work, dedication, and poise on each of her events.
